* ''Fanfic/EquestriaAcrossTheMultiverse'' has Kimono from [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyG3 the World of Empathy]]. She's an ActualPacifist like the rest of her world, but still desires to help the rest of the multiversal alliance whenever she can. So she builds the Bard System, her world's PoweredArmor variant focused on [[SupportPartyMember supporting allies with healing and power buffs]] and [[StoneWall defense]] with next to no offense. She ends up joining in the Storm King Conflict, and providing critical and beneficial support to her side, allowing her to be as active a participant in the battle as the Pillars of Old Equestria and Hegemony forces she's partnered with. She even manages to talk the surviving enemy soldiers into surrendering. It helps that the Innocence Magic her Bard Armor runs on is a KryptoniteFactor to enemies using corruptive forms of magic.

Contrast ARealManIsAKiller and PacifismBackfire. Compare MartialPacifist. The ReluctantWarrior wishes he could be a Badass Pacifist. The TechnicalPacifist is similar, but may resort to violence short of killing or allow someone else to do the dirty work; the Badass Pacifist succeeds without using any violence at all.

* The UsefulNotes/{{Egypt}}ian protesters in Tahrir Square. They faced assault by riot police and gangs of thugs armed with machetes, molotovs, and even firearms. They responded by erecting barriers, establishing their own community-organized security to keep out government infiltrators who would initiate violence, and repeatedly calling for nonviolence. There were a few situations where they would strike back at isolated attackers or throw rocks to keep their oppressors from getting to close, but for the most part they maintained their dedication to peaceful protest. And in doing so, they overthrew Hosni Mubarak, who lead one of the most firmly entrenched military dictatorships in the world.

* It is possible to play Faith as one in ''VideoGame/MirrorsEdge''. With her parkour skills, she can outrun all of the mooks. In fact, this how you get the best times in the Speed Runs.

* It is possible to be this in ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'' with the a deck that specializes in library depletion. The idea of the deck is very simple - counter or destroy your opponent's ability to do damage to you. Alternately (or additionally) gain an obscene amount of life so that the damage that the opponent is doing is irrelevant. Meanwhile, you use various cards, such as the Millstone to slowly remove cards from their library. Or you could use a card like Stroke of Genius to force them to draw through their deck in one fell swoop. Or you could just wait them out... It's very possible to build an effective deck of this type that has no ability to do damage.

* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series, the legendary Tongue (ancient [[HornyVikings Nord]] warriors who were masters of the [[LanguageOfMagic Thu'um]]) Jurgen Windcaller became one following his HeelFaithTurn, and instilled this philosophy in his [[OldMaster Greybeard]] followers. When the other Tongues tried to "shout" he and his teachings down, [[TurnTheOtherCheek he didn't fight back]]. Instead, he "swallowed" their words for three entire days to prove his mastery. This caused them to acknowledge his superiority and wisdom in the Voice. Despite the strength such a group may possess, he set the Greybeards' policy of non-intervention in worldly affairs, and of studying the Voice as a way to honor the gods. In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'', it takes the [[PlayerCharacter Dragonborn]] (a mortal blessed with the immortal soul of a [[OurDragonsAreDifferent dragon]] by the [[DragonsAreDivine draconic]] TopGod Akatosh who the Greybeards are sworn to teach and serve) to convince them to help end the dragon menace to Skyrim, and even then they only offer their monastery as a neutral meeting ground for the warring {{Civil War}} factions to hammer out a ceasefire agreement.

** [[HeroWithBadPublicity Dhurke]], leader of [[LaResistance Defiant Dragons]], faces the evil regime while swearing not to shed blood. By the time ''Spirit of Justice'' starts he's been fighting for 23 years and [[spoiler: while it wasn't him who overthrew the regime, he made it possible for Apollo to do so]]. Even [[spoiler: ''his own death'']] couldn't stop him from saving both Maya and Apollo.

** [[CrusadingLawyer Phoenix Wright]] faces dangers both in and out of courtroom, ranging from poisoners to mafia to [[AmoralAttorney Amoral Prosecutors]], never once backing down when he believes in his clients' innocence. Outside of courtroom, he once ran on burning bridge to make sure his partner was safe, and investigated a case while having 39 degrees[[note]]102.2 in Fahrenheit scale[[/note]] fever to protect person he cares about. His probably biggest baddass moment is early in ''[[VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneySpiritOfJustice Spirit of Justice]]'' when he defends the kid he barely knows accused of murder and then learns that in Khura'in lawyers face the same punishment as their clients if they fail. He gets chance to walk out without consequences and ''refuses''.
